    Shay (sp?) did a great job of familiarizing us with parts of Beale Street that were not highlighted on other tours. It was nice to have such a private, personal tour with someone so knowledgeable about the history of Beale Street.

    Although I have been on Beale street many times I wanted to learn more about its history. This tour was filled with history about Beale street and the people that made it. If you want to learn about Beale street this is the way to go.
